Abstract

SUMMARY: Intestinal damage to mice caused by an enterotoxin from a coatless spore mutant of type A (8-6) was examined by scanning electron microscopy. Two distinct types of damage were observed, both of which could be correlated with animal age. Damage appeared to occur in a specific sequence similar to that found in previous studies in rabbits. We conclude that the type of ileal tissue damage reflects the mode of toxin incorporation from the gut, which is a function of animal age.
